Well, not quite: all those equations are deterministic – nothing for us statisticians to get our teeth into. Grrr.

    Ooooo Dear!!, missing several equations:
    Van Der Waals Forces of B-Carotene
    The Hodgkin-Huxley theory of the action potential (Rabbit).
    Etc, etc, etc.

    Is there an equation to calculate interest in lanyards? I get all the free ones I can handle, thankyouverymuch.

    What a great cartoon…!

  4. Bob O'Hara says:

    Can anyone explain – why lanyards? Why are they big enough business to be worth spamming about?
    I’m almost too scared too google them.
    Stephen – how many of those equations do you use?

  5. Cath Ennis says:

    Judging by the number I get offered in a given year, lots and lots and lots of companies get lanyards printed up with their logos as freebies to give away at conferences and such. I think I ended up with about eight during the Olympics, for example, and I wasn’t even trying. People just thrust them into my hand at the various venues and pavilions, and even on the street.

    Hm, real-world spam, eh?
    So why would someone spam NN persuading us to buy some?

  7. Cath Ennis says:

    Yes, it was like that Dave Chapelle sketch where he goes into a real-life mall that’s just like the internet. I’ll try to find it later; it’s NSFW.
    Maybe the spammer is under the impression that NN readers are freebie makers rather than freebie gannets hoardersrecipients.
